If you are following a gluten-free diet, you need to avoid eating foods that contain wheat. You also have to look for gluten-free dining options that provide all the nutrients needed for a well-balanced diet. Let's briefly talk about what a "gluten-free" diet is and the healthy meals you can eat without consuming gluten.
A gluten-free diet doesn’t have any gluten protein. Typically, gluten is found in wheat. It’s also present in rye, barley, and triticale, which is a crossbred grain produced from wheat and rye. However, it’s also possible to find gluten in trace amounts in oats grown on the same field as wheat.
